AN INDIVIDUALLY GUIDED RETREAT
17-23 May 2021
Lee Abbey, North Devon.
I will be leading a team of people to guide guests through an individually-guided silent retreat in the beautiful setting of Lee Abbey. Each day includes an act of worship at which I shall be speaking, and each guest is offered a spiritual direction session with their director.
Pilgrimages: Each year I lead Pilgrimages with Russ Parker
Our Pilgrimages for this year are full, but if you are interested in a Pilgrimage in Ireland in August 2020 please email me ().
some feedback from a recent retreat...
Michael is a delightful and engaging speaker - he is one of those individuals who leaves an imprint on your mind and his sense of calm and kindness is something I have remembered on a number of occasions this week and tried to invoke while teaching turbulent secondary school pupils!
Michael is an excellent speaker and I really valued his creative and imaginative approach.
I found Michael’s beautiful presentations really helpful. I liked the way he made such good use of visual images, video clips, poetry and stories from the lives of the saints.
